A haskell implementation of a sphinx full text search client. Sphinx is a very fast and featureful full-text search daemon. Version 0.4 is Compatible with sphinx version 1.1-beta Version 0.5 is Compatible with sphinx version 2.0-beta, but you can pass the version-one-one build flag. On hackage.
query executes a single query.
runQueries executes multiple queries at once that were created them with
In extended mode you may want to escape special query characters with
buildExcerpts creates highlighted excerpts
You will probably need to import the types also:
import qualified Text.Search.Sphinx as Sphinx import qualified Text.Search.Sphinx.Types as SphinxT
There is also an
Indexable module for generating an xml file of data to be indexed
runQueries pipelines multiple queries together. If you are trying to combine the results, there are some helpers such as
mr <- Sphinx.maybeQueries sphinxLogger sphinxConfig [ addQuery "db1" query1 , addQuery "db2" query1 , addQuery "db1" query2 , addQuery "db2" query2 ] case mr of Nothing -> return Nothing Just rs -> do let combined = Sphinx.resultsToMatches 20 rs if null combined then return Nothing else return $ Just combined
Implementation of API as detailed in the documentation. Most search and buildExcerpts features are implemented.
Originally written by Tupil and maintained by Chris Eidhof for an earlier version of sphinx. Greg Weber improved the library and updated it for the latest version of sphinx, and is now maintaining it.
Usage of this haskell client
Tupil originally wrote this for use on a commercial project. This sphinx package is now finding some use in the Yesod community. Here is a well described example usage, but do keep in mind there is no requirement to tie the generation of sphinx documents to your web application, just your database. Used in Yesod applications yesdoweb.com and eatnutrients.com.
